"You are confined only by the walls you build yourself" - Andrew Murphy.
Thirty one of my year 11 students, of whom ten are Maori have their first NCEA L1 mathematics assessment at the end of this week. In order to reach our school target of 80% getting L1 numeracy, we need at least twenty-four students including eight Maori to gain credits. We are way off the mark, so will discuss how to break down the walls that are preventing us from achieving to our potential. Students were asked to complete a student-voice survey. Look out for my next blog for the results.
